Hi Kvsk,


Placenta is a special umbilical cord that develops in the fourth week of pregnancy. It establishes an intimate connection between the foetal membrane and the uterine wall.

Function of placenta:

  • The exchange of materials between the mother’s blood and the blood of foetus takes place through the placenta.
  • It serves as a nutritive, respiratory and excretory organ of the foetus.
